The Fine Art Museum at Western Carolina University will present a spring exhibition titled “Remote Sites of War,” featuring more than 110 works by North Carolina- based artists Todd Drake, Skip Rohde and Christopher Sims.
The exhibition opens Thursday, April 10, and continues through Friday, May 30.
“Remote Sites of War” offers a first-person worldview of war that is quietly revealing and poses as many questions for people to consider as it does answers, said David J. Brown, Fine Art Museum director who also organized the exhibition.
“Ongoing armed conflicts involving the United States somewhere in the world seem to have little effect on us; we are carefully shielded from what really occurs,” Brown said. “In their own way, each of these artists delves into the peripheries of war and shares a core belief that all humans deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.”
